Essay by Antonin Dufek.
Published by Torst
The now-legendary photographer Bohdan Holomicek--born in 1943--has traveled throughout the Czech Republic for several years, recording a never-ending series of moments. In doing this, however, he is not so much seeking to act as a documentarian or photojournalist as he is seeking to assemble countless ordinary moments into something extraordinary, something as large as--not larger than--life. In the figure of Holomicek a rare unity of life and art is achieved. He is a highly individual chronicler of more than 30 years of life in the Czech region, and the personal and transcendental stamp he puts into his work communicates itself across boundaries of nation and ethnicity. This retrospective look at Holomicek's work contains beautiful duotone reproductions of the artist's images and serves as a splendid introduction to his oeuvre.
